Toyota’s planning an exhibit of titanic proportions, as the company will display more than 50 vehicles in its exhibit at this year’s Chicago Auto Show.
It’s a veritable torrent of Toyotas at this year’s Chicago Auto Show. From February 10 – 19, the company will display more than 50 vehicles in its exhibit at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Headlining the event will be the all-new Avalon that premiered in Detroit. Even better for some folks: a new assortment of “trail-ready four wheelers” (per Toyota) will be unveiled at the show as well! They show three such models in the teaser photo above. Toyota strategically photographed the models from a distance, but it looks like new variants of the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner.
Also on display at the show will be the Toyota FT-4X Concept. Dubbed “Future Toyota”, this crossover last made an appearance at last year’s New York International Auto Show, and is billed as a “modern toolbox” for the city driver.
SEMA concepts abound
Toyota will also display other concepts that unveiled at last year’s SEMA show, including a Camry created by racing analyst Rutledge Wood, of History Channel’s Top Gear fame. That particular Camry features 3D-printed body panels, a Blurple exterior and a refinished interior.
Speaking of Camrys, Toyota’s also planning a “Camry Thrill Ride” indoor drive experience. The experience will be open February 10 – 18 during show hours. Visitors will be able to ride in a new Toyota Camry XSE in on a closed course led by professional drivers. You’ll even be able to take your kids along – just bring your own car seat!
There are a few other displays and activities around the show, in addition to Toyota’s regular displays. You’ll be able to have your picture taken alongside an Olympic-wrapped RAV4, as well as check out the Hiring our Heroes truck, which supports a program to help veterans and military spouses get the tools they need to transition to civilian jobs. Finally, visitors can check out Toyota’s Entune and Toyota Safety Sense systems through interactive displays and virtual reality.
